The protein encoded by this gene is similar to insulin in function and structure and is a member of a family of proteins involved in mediating growth and development. The encoded protein is processed from a precursor, bound by a specific receptor, and secreted. Defects in this gene are a cause of insulin-like growth factor I deficiency. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
Insulinis a pancreatic hormone that regulates glucose uptake and the synthesis ofprotein and fat. The insulin like growth factors, isolated from plasma, arestructurally and functionally related to insulin but have a much highergrowth promoting activity. I
